  1. Our region is currently inaccessible - we have no idea why- but live help wont be currently available to us for another two hours....
  2. Hey we europeans pay the same tier as United States users so might it be feasible that we expect some live help before 3pm ???/ Its all very well that American users can get live help from 8 am onwards but over here in the UK that means at least 3 pm in the afternoon ...but our tier isnt any less. In fact we pay more in more ways than one.
  3. I thought that one of the ideas of this revamped forum was to get some input and help from Lindens...as usual NOTHING !!
  4. So I have to pay to send a copy of my most personal document from the UK to california.... ..Im paying Lindens to sort out this sort of rubbish not to have to pay more to provide personal documents....:manmad:
  5. Perhaps lindens can explain why it's okay to take money from me or anyone else without age verification - but why the option to close areas of sl to those who dont have (or want) the documentation to give extra info to some obscure third party company of poor standing among the sl community exists, especially in this age of identity theft, when their credit card and pay pal account should prove quite adequate as mine should......
  6. You cant submit a ticket youre referred back to the age verification page....
  7. Classic I'm paying over 100 dollars a month in tier fees and have a premium account which is currently paid by pay pal and has also been paid by credit card - I'm in the UK and you have to be over 18 to have either...SL can determine my location by IP as I know only too well when they started charging me V.A.T. and yet this is insufficient to age verify me !! I dont have a passport and I dont have a driving licence which are the only methods open to anyone in the UK to age verify. Therefore Im blocked from any area which requires visitors be age verified. Its ludicrous come on Lindens get this sorted youre happy taking my dosh... you werent too worried by my age when I signed up. You easily have enough info to age verify me. Ive been complaining about this for ages and the problem is still unaddressed. I would be happy to accept a refund on my tier or my account because a percentage of sl is closed to me. By the way trying to submit a ticket on this is usless to. You simply get referred back to the age verification page.
  8. Rolig Im interested by your comment because I have the opposite proble I appear complete to others but not myself with pieces missing from items like spectacles and a prim beard - I touch the items and they appear suddenly complete again - usually this happens after Ive looked away from sl (switching to say my browser then switching back), this also sometimes textures my avy with the background too. Wonder if you have a cause and possible solution for that ?
  9. Basically creators arent getting the back up they deserve... some might ask whats the point of buying a beautifully crafted horse, car or aircraft or boat when it spins madly out of control or sinks into the grand at a boundary or even parcel crossing... and what - some may ask - is the point of trying to build precisely when textures flicker madly no matter how pieces are positioned while some textures cause others to vanish............
  10. All this fuss about Jira ...I always found it too complex...is it too difficult for sl inhabitants to be updated simply on the 'major' technical issues - the problem is that we never do seem to get up dates on issues which seem to go on and on apparently untackled and effect the majority of users - problems with textures vanishing and flickering and the most annoying possible problem (as far as Im concerned) crashing and loosing vehicle control etc at boundary crossings go on and on despite promises from the very top.... Updates on issues like these are about as common as hens teeth.....
  11. Well I suppose while people are complaining about this latest barmy scheme theyre not complaining about high tiers, land values, tps not working,crashes at boundary crossing, naff viewers....
  12. Does questioning SL's reasons for doing things, then saying keep up the good work preclude the possibility of being banned...it may be me but I find comments saying how well sl are doing and then saying the idea about facebook is rubbish (in not so many words) a little perfidious ......
  13. Amanda Ive looked throught the groups - can you tell me which one will be covering 'discussion' about tier fees thats the issue uppermost in my mind....
  14. Why are you thanking 'em for using a system you find useless ?? Faced with a tier of 195 dollars ( plus v.a.t in some cases) I dont think any amount of 'shouting the joys of second life from the hilltops' will help in the growing face of cheaper competition.....
  15. Wow a response and I found it by absolute chance buried away.... Amanda I look forward to finding out more about these user groups and hopefully getting a few answers to suggestion/questions Ive been putting forward in a mass of questionaires - which pop up occasionally - for over 2 years.... Hopefully once I join these user groups which will hopefully tackle 'important' issues such as payment methods, tier charges , boundary crossing issues I'll get more of a response than any of your surveys yielded....
  16. Incidentally one of your competitors sold 40 regions last night I wouldnt say your post had anything to do with it though (I wont name em for fear of having you ban me and lose your company the fees in excess of 200 dollars a month Im paying with my partner to Lindens to apparently be told to go to facebook and how to behave on the foums)....
  17. Ive just read those community participation rules which basically mean you cant criticise Linden Labs or discuss their competition ( unless presumbaly youre a Linden top dog promoting facebook or twitter) and one rule would also clearly suggest that disputes be carried on in IM in world - so presumably its okay now to barrage some who disagrees with you abusive ims...at least thats what the 'rule' implies. 'Interpersonal Disputes or Personal Negative Commentary: If you have a personal disagreement, do not post about it on the Second Life community pages. Residents who have personal differences have other channels of communication available to them — private messaging in the forums, IM within Second Life, or chatting within Second Life.' Improving communication ?? Don't you mean controlling communication ??
  18. Oh I missed the bit about referencing other sites... Does this mean Amanda could be in deep do-dos for promoting face book
  19. Many of the steps I see Lindens taking too me usually indicate that Lindens dont want to do the job... while many applaud the introduction of meshes, for example, I simply see this as a move which take the onus away from lindens to provide an up to date in world building system. You don't even build or work in world to create, the emphasis is on you to find software to create meshes. Natrually you have to pay to import your external creations too. Lindens dont have to provide the tools..they just take the money and run... its the same story with viewers..where ever I wander I see more and more people using phoenix and very few using viewer two... Promises regarding boundary crossing have gone unfulfilled...in fact Philip Linden resigned his post before the promised date for an end to boundary crossing issues was reached.... Now the suggestion seems to be that before Lindens will operate a properly run questions and answers forum you have to toddle off to other sites to get the info on sl... Why is there the apparent assumption that everyone has facebook....
  20. Why are some people writing essays on this... All lindens need to know is that tiers are too high and need to be slashed...anyone who denies this fact either doesn't pay a tier, has money to burn or is simply cuckoo.. Posts like this have been spewed how for years, they do nothing for sl residents, they do nothing to encourage activity in sl... I'd use the terms smokescreen for the real issues or more of the same old usless 'blah' I can tell that they're already to regret that facebook remark though.....
  21. Im supriseD we're being told to go to facebook and twitter. Are we also likely to find out more if we go to places like avination - other than land and tier charges are a fraction of the price in SL ?????
  22. How about sections in the forum where all questions about all aspects of SL are guaranteed an answer from a linden representative .... It seems to me no interest is taken at all by serious views relating to the everyday issues which face sl users.....?
  23. Land prices ( aside from areas by the seaside arent generally high) its the tier's that are high.... if you think land is too highly priced thats probably someone over ambitious - tier prices are down to linden management and I cant see why they dont have the sense to make changes to the tier systems and payment methods to give SL the boost it needs....
  24. Hi Rod My hope is that you might get together with those of us who like to build using the inworld building system and try and come up with new and interesting ideas which expand on the system we use - providing an alternative for those of us who simply dont want to tackle the 'complexeties ' of meshes and sculpties. Im hoping you might spot the enjoyment in 'inworld' building which doesnt rely on using software outside sl and importing the end producting in via upload... Good luck in your new post.
  25. Hi Rod Good luck in your new post.
